So… I think I might have mentioned on Friday that it was Scott and I’s 10th anniversary… Not sure if I made that clear or not though. *grin*
My husband and I have this ongoing “discussion” that has lasted a whopping ten years… that fact that neither of us like the other to “make” decisions.
Krista: “Where do you want to go eat dear?”
Scott: “I don’t know. Where do you want to go?”
Krista: “You pick.”
Scott: “No, you.”
Krista: “Seriously, I’ll let you pick this time.”
Scott: “Fine, what about Mexican?”
Krista: “But I hate Mexican.”
Scott: “Then you pick.”
Krista–who knows that she’s now been tricked: “Seriously, that’s not fair.”
Scott: “Fine, we’ll go to Mexican.”
Then we end up posing the question to our kids who pick either:
- Pizza buffet
- A steak house that has “cinnamon” butter.
So, Friday night we’d talked about it BEFORE to decide where we wanted to eat, but my husband insinuated he had “something else” planned as well. I had NO clue what it could be. My husband, bless is heart, has issues sometimes making decisions and more oft than not ends up just not making ANY decision because he can’t decide… In his defense, I don’t make it easy for him, in fact probably make the matter worse.
So, him announcing that he had “something” planned was HUGE for me. This was my wonderful, sweet husband, PRE-planning something without asking for my input, just to make it special for me. The whole day Friday I felt on top of the world. I really didn’t care if it was just that he’d picked the restaurant and pre-bought tickets to a movie via Fandango. It was the thought that counted.
We went out to at the restaurant we’d decided on, and that’s when he let me know where he was taking me afterwords.
Would you like to know where?
Of course you would! See, you’re as impatient to know what my wonderful, handsome, thoughtful, sweet husband came up with as me! To make matters worse, he’d told me “It’s starts at 9:30 so it will be a really late night.” Now, I’m thinking, he wouldn’t be making this big of a deal out of it for just a plain ole’ movie. But what could start at 9:30???? That he had to like, plan, before hand?
Okay, fine. I know you’re about ready to clobber me if I don’t tell you.
My husband took me to the Grand Ole’ Opry. They were hosting “Opry goes Pink” in support of Breast Cancer Research and Awareness. Singing there were a whole host of different country artists including Jo Dee Messina, Terri Clark, and Carrie Underwood. Now… HOW COOL IS THAT! I was completely blown away and so very very proud of my husband to think of something like that! We were dressed up pretty fancy for our date… so it was fun to go to the concert all decked out and, well, I had a grand time. The concert was great, my husband was fabulous and I am pretty much the luckiest woman alive to have married such a thoughtful man.
Oh, and he also sent me a dozen long-stem roses to work and gave me a necklace and earrings as my present. I told you he was wonderful!!!!!
Here are some fun pictures from our evening and the concert.
Song he sang: If you can’t make money…. make out… with somebody.
I seriously had tears rolling I laughed so hard.
A Yodler! She did a wonderful job, not something I’m usually “into” but it really was fantastic!
